Opinions on these wheels?

Thinking about some new wheels.. I kinda like both of these.. Any thoughts or opinions? It's for a Stone White JGC. I guess a third option would be neither..

#1





#2

Re: Opinions on these wheels?

#1 would be my choice. Have you considered powder coating your stocks?

Re: Opinions on these wheels?

I thought about it, but I don't have a second set to get around on.. Not even sure who does that where I'm at to be honest. But the bigger problem would be putting my ride on blocks.. lol

I am begining to research powder coating. I belive there some tire shops that have loaner wheels while yours get powder coated. It may be worth checking out, especially if you have the stock 20's.

Re: Opinions on these wheels?

Not feeling either of the wheels but if i have to choose I'll go with option 1. X2 on powdercoating the stock 20s.

Re: Opinions on these wheels?

I would vote #1 but I do like powder coating the stockers too.

Re: Opinions on these wheels?

I prefer #2. I like the unpainted portion to set off the wheel.
You could get the 20s off of eBay.

Re: Opinions on these wheels?

+1, Powder Coat or Plastidip your 18's for winter set, and score a set of the 20's here in the classifieds. They seem to be getting more reasonable recently, sub $1k for the set.
